What Every Singer Should Know
by Millie Ryan
Publisher: Franklin Publishing 1910
This book is not for the purpose of instruction in singing, as singing is an art which cannot be taught from book or correspondence. I aim through the medium of my book to have a "heart-to-heart" talk with the beginner, and with those who contemplate the study of voice culture. I wish to give all the valuable "hints" and "helps" that it has taken years of experience to gather, covering all the questions that are absolutely necessary to know, making it brief, simple and understandable.
